In a world of gamified dating, are there any winners?

Dating apps can help people to widen their dating circles, but with another potential match just one swipe away, will anyone ever be satisfied with their current mate? Can you get addicted to dating apps? Are they used to find ‘The One’ or to provide a quick ego boost?

I was invited to this panel discussion about online dating apps for Science at Life in Newcastle. It was part of the Science Speakeasy series of events.
